3) Weaving

For the third part of the tour, we went to the weaving area of the farm. Fibers were tied together and weaved to make the native cloth.

After weaving, native cloths like these were kept. Some were available for sale, and some were made into bags or baskets.

In the farm, Rattan furniture and things were also made. But as of our visit, the farm concentrates on making plastic Rattan furniture because normal Rattan can deteriorate easily unlike the plastic which can be used for a long time.

4) The Coconut House

Shortly after the weaving area, we were introduced to this house.

From afar the house looked like it was built out of big stones, but in reality it was made out of Coconut Shells. It was a good way of showing how to recycle the Coconut Shells 🙂

Seeing the Bees was the highlight of the tour.

There were 2 boxes containing 5 frames with Beehives.

The tour guide took one frame ans showed it to us.

Bee Hive Bohol Bee Farm Happy and Busy Travels

The boxes were made by people and it was bare, it was the Bees who made the Beehives. In one colony, there should be one queen Bee. We hoped that there was a queen bee in this frame.

Oh yes the queen bee was there! As noticeable in the picture, the other bees gives way to the queen bee as she passes by. The queen bee was spotted immediately because she has a larger size than the other bees.

The queen bee is responsible for laying eggs while the other bees were responsible for getting food and building the beehive.

In the frame that the guide took, there were two queen bees. According to our guide, if there were two queen bees, they will fight until the other queen dies or move to another colony.

 

Some of the bees left their homes and some were baffled after the 2013 Bohol earthquake. The farm always have a lot of visitors for the tour and guests in their hotel. So after the earthquake, the farm decided to keep only two boxes of bees in the farm, and the other boxes were placed in the house of the owner.

We also had the chance to take a picture with the bees. Visitors were allowed to take a picture with the bees, but we were warned that we should not panic when a bee perched on us and, most importantly, we should not drop the frame.
